10 Vehicles That Prove Ford Performance Is Top Tier
The team to watch over the next few years may not be the Cavs, the Pats, or the Cubs after all. In fact, it may not even be a sports team at all. It might be…Ford? Like a shrewd general manager rebuilding a team, Ford has spent the last few years looking at their roster, quietly making an addition here and an upgrade there, until they suddenly have a world-class lineup that puts everybody on notice – not only GM and Chrysler, but more recently, Ferrari and Porsche too.
Much of this performance push is the result of Ford’s turbocharged and highly versatile EcoBoost engines. Ford famously introduced the three-cylinder EcoBoost engine by bringing the engine block to the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show in a carry-on bag.

The same V6 block that powers the 350 horsepower Taurus SHO is also found in the mighty all-new Ford GT , putting out a whopping 600 horsepower. Proving that power is no longer necessarily linked to displacement, here are 10 reasons why Ford’s performance line-up is world class in every way.Source: The Cheat Sheet » The Cheat Sheet
